Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. Nearly 1 in 5 individuals will develop some form of skin cancer in their lives. However, with early detection, it can be treated quickly and with a high cure rate.
At Ocean Skin and Vein we are all board-certified dermatologists who are experts in the detection, prevention, and management of all skin cancers.
We have cutting-edge treatment options, including excisions, Mohs micrographic surgery, and superficial radiation treatment as a non-invasive option.
